Local News

Scientists expected the remains of “Homo Naledi” to be at least two million years old, but after more studies it was announced Tuesday that this species was alive sometime between 200 and 300 thousand years ago.

The discovery shows that this primitive small-brained species likely lived alongside Homosapiens.

Heather Garvin, Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Mercyhurst University worked with the cranial team in demonstrating the brain size of the Homo Naledi.
